GET ITBy HeatherRuthDiane (9 reviews) , 24 Sep 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]I expected to have a laugh at a 50+-year-old man trying to act like a 20-year-old. In fact, apart from some of the dance-steps being modified to suit a slightly less energetic dancer, Michael Flatley was surprisingly brilliant. His attitude seems to have changed a bit too. All in all, he seemed to be enjoying it AND appreciating the audience, instead of merely showing off. And of course Bernadette Flynn was her usual amazing self as Saoirse. The new scenery is pretty good and all in all it keeps the mood and ambience of the original. All in all, a good evening's DVD entertainment.

If you haven't seen the original then recommend to watch!By a customer , 13 Mar 2012I think if you haven't seen the original lord of the dance video (which was released in 1999) then you will probably find this amazing! The steps, songs and precision is brilliant to watch.
However as this was a 'Return to Lord of the Dance' I expected it to be different from the original, but it is almost exactly the same including the storyline etc.
I was a little disapointed when watching.
A waste of an eveningBy a customer , 22 Feb 2012This could have been fantastic, it's true all the dancers are very talented, the costumes, were of course beautiful. The problem was some of the music was so dire it made the show tedious to watch, I found myself fast forwarding quite a bit....I wanted something uplifting. Other than that, it was not entertaining to find a room full of female dancers wearing what were glorified bikinis just to sex the show up a bit...the dancers are sexy already...it was just an unnecessary distraction. Finally the man himself, Mr Flately, was showing off way too much, he has a fantastic talent and doesn't need to prove anything......give me Riverdance any day of the week instead.
Flatley at his bestBy Darksider109 (3 reviews) from Rugby , 08 Feb 2012I have a copy of the original show but I must say this rendition is far more polished and heart warming.
If you love Irish dancing and the excitement of a vibrant show that you will love this show.
Lord of the DanceBy a customer , 05 Jan 2012For me it was a tad disappointing no doubt because we had seen him, live at the London Coliseum. Do not like his continuing theme of a fight as a main subject and this ,for me does not work well with a musical backdrop; certainly in this instance.
The music and supporting cast with some exceptions are not as good ,nor provide the variety of the competitive Riverdance.
Flatly was supurb in both Riverdance and original Lord-- programs and it would be too much to expect the same charisma he had exuded .
Micheal Flatley returns as Lord od the Dance 2011.By shihan (44 reviews) from Halstead , 28 Dec 2011konnichiwa
very similar to the original, following the same celtic theme.
However, the 'props' are modern and in some ways lose the magic of the storyline. Dance and music are fine, there is a lot of dark reds and browns in the scenery and this is also disappointing as it darkens the screen. It is well worth watching and the old magic is still there with Flatley.
I would recommend it.
